I stumbled upon Whitehall Manor after recommendation from a photographer. To say I was blown away by this site is a huge understatement. I immediately contacted Douglas and set up a visit. That same day we visited multiple site, but nothing compared to Whitehall. I called my parents that afternoon and asked their permission to book the venue. Since we were not able to sign a contract that day, I asked Douglas if we could set up another date for my parents to come out and he had no problem holding our date until that time. We booked Whitehall for our wedding and the planning took off from there. The venue gives such inspiration and is so beautiful that I knew there wouldn't be too much to do because of the already existing beauty of the property. I attended my first tasting in 2009. The food was amazing! I sat there with my brother and ran through the entire menu, but we could not make our selection because we really did love everything. During the tasting Douglas came over multiple times to see if we had any questions and to just check in on us. Even during a group tasting, I still felt that I was given personal attention...which I loved. Since we were unable to decide on our menu, we went to another tasting in the months leading up to the wedding. This time I had my mother, brother and husband with me. Their faces and comments were priceless during the tasting. They were all amazed with the food and the presentation. At the end of the tasting we were able to pick out most of the menu and also decide on table linens. In the few weeks leading up to the wedding I spoke with Douglas quite often. He was always very responsive to my emails and phone calls and I always felt comfortable making decisions. The venue the day of my wedding was PERFECT! Thankfully the weather cooperated and we were able to have our ceremony outside. With the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background, the blooming flowers, and the beautiful mansion behind us; it was picture perfect. From the ceremony to the cocktail hour to the reception, everything went perfectly. The staff was really on top of it and made all of my guests happy. I still recieve compliments about the Whitehall and how beautiful of a venue it was for the wedding. All of our family and friends from out of town could not believe that such a place existed. It felt like it was right out of a story book, and I am thankful that I can look back on my wedding and picture myself getting married on the lawn of Whitehall Manor. Just thinking about it brings a smile to my face. Thank you to everyone from Whitehall for making my wedding day perfect. I could not have asked for a better venue and more beautiful location. AWESOME!

We had the most perfect wedding day imaginable at Whitehall Estate. Our guests have told us repeatedly that this was the best wedding they have ever attended. Douglas and the staff were incredible - the food was delicious, we never saw a line at the bar, and everything was timed perfectly to keep the evening moving along at a fun pace. The staff even made sure that we actually got to taste our hors d'oeuvres and drinks at the cocktail hour. Despite weather challenges (it poured rain), we wouldn't have changed a thing. Douglas kept us informed while making a decision on the weather, and we were so pleased with how it worked out - having the ceremony indoors was beautiful and the breakdown was so quick between ceremony and reception. Our wedding planning process was also completely stress-free from start to finish. Whitehall handles everything - catering, tables, linens, and even did an ice cream sundae bar for us in lieu of wedding cake! We would 100% recommend Whitehall to anyone who is looking for a gorgeous, scenic, relaxed wedding with amazing food and a great party.

Douglas and his team are amazing! The wedding venue is outstanding. Whitehall Estate is surrounded by a beautiful landscape. It is really breathtaking. The reception hall contains these great floor to ceiling windows. Above the dance floor there are hanging twinkle lights. There is a separate but connected room for cutting the cake, the bar area, and where guests enter to grab their table cards. In the main part of the Estate is where the bride and groom get ready on separate floors. The staff were very attentive the whole day, even during the family photos in which they served us cocktails and appetizers. The staff were nice, dressed appropriately, and very friendly. The food was amazing! The dinner choices we selected for our guest to choose from were filet mignon, chicken with a madeira wine sauce, crab cakes, and quinoa with mediterranean vegetables for those that have specific dietary needs. We also had a selection of appetizers. I have an intolerance to MSG so Douglas and the chefs checked all of the ingredients to ensure I wasn't going to get ill. I really appreciated that. There are wonderful vineyards and breweries in the area for your guests to go to. Lots of hotels, house rentals, and B&Bs within 10 to 20 minutes away. We are so grateful for a wonderful day. Thank you Douglas and team!

I cannot say enough good things about Doug and his team at Whitehall! They were some of my favorite vendors from my wedding in October and they made everything so special! The property at Whitehall is exquisitely maintained and has a grand feel to it without being stuffy. The new ballroom where we held our dinner reception has big windows that allow a lot of natural light and keep a romantic atmosphere (as opposed to a claustrophobic ballroom environment you would get from a hotel). We easily fit 150 guests at a mixture of round tables and farm tables and everyone complimented us on the amazing food! We created our own appetizer- a Southern inspired biscuit with a piece of fried chicken and drizzled with honey- but my favorite was the fig and brie tart! The outdoor space is what sold Whitehall for us- we had an outdoor cocktail hour with fire pits, outdoor games like cornhole, and passed hors d'oeuvres and drinks but they have this old historic caboose where we shot a lot of our group pictures. The setting is bucolic and ideal- we loved being shaded by the giant hickory trees but having the freedom to take pictures by the horse fences and fields all while capturing the Blue Ridge Mountains in the background! We loved that the whole estate is open- our guests explored the historic house and played card games or sat and had actual conversations while others were out on the dance floor in the new addition. It provided a lot of flexibility for our guests! I also loved that they don't nickel and dime you- a lot of his fees are waived or included in the base price so you won't end up shelling out a lot of money at the end. Whitehall was amazing- from start to finish!

I was you your shoes right now. Dealing with the stress of finding the perfect venue for your wedding is something I am glad is now over. But here is the good news, you don’t need to stress anymore. You have found the perfect caterer and venue in Whilehall Manor. There is no need to look any further. I say this in confidence because my entire experience from first walking onto the spacious grounds to walking down the aisle was an absolute delight. Doug could not have been better with meeting our every need with compassionate and quality service. Doug was always just an email away with any questions no matter how small they might seem and made us feel like we were the only ones who mattered. I could not be happier with our choice to use Whitehall Manor as our wedding venue. The biggest complement from our guests was the food quality. I heard time and time again how the food was the best food they had every had at a wedding. Again, Whilehall checks all the boxes and you will be glad you chose it for your wedding.

Whitehall Estate is a BEAUTIFUL venue! If you like the updated-historic-home look, this is your venue. Both the building and the grounds are great for a wedding in the 100-150 guest range. The house has several 'rooms' which works well for appearing to have multiple event spaces, getting ready before the ceremony, and a quiet place for older guests to relax (if needed). Doug is the event manager and is super proactive, responsive and accommodating. Once we visited Whitehall, we knew we were done shopping for venues. One thing to note that due to the location, hotels are about 20-30 minutes away (so we opted to offer bus transportation for our guests), but there is a lot of parking available at the venue.

We originally choose Whitehall because it was our favorite venue that was pretty all-inclusive (includes catering, mixers for the bar - you bring your own alcohol, linens, silverware, china, wait staff, and set up/tear down help) and also had the best rain plan for our desired outdoor ceremony. But every interaction since then made us love Whitehall even more! The food at the tasting was great, Douglas was INCREDIBLY helpful with our tons of questions and inquiries. He went out of his way to get us quick responses to all our questions, and try as we might, we couldn’t seem to find any question he couldn’t answer. Douglas is a consummate professional and he/his team can tackle anything! We brought in our own wedding arch and they were totally accommodating. And the space is BEAUTIFUL… Then we got to our wedding day and we were completely BLOWN AWAY. A bridesmaid and a few of our guests are gluten free and so the Whitehall staff CONSTANTLY made sure there was food they could eat all throughout. They really went above and beyond! The staff was amazing and constantly offering help or beverages to guests (bonus points - they took awesome care of the bride and groom when we decided to have dinner early). We had signature cocktails and they had them ready and waiting, on trays for delivery, as soon as the ceremony was over— the wedding party and our guests loved it! Then there was the actual food during the wedding— IT WAS BETTER THAN AT OUR TASTING. People are still raving to me about the food weeks later, and these are people that I know and love for being serious food snobs. Seriously, Whitehall helped make me the most stress-free bride ever. We used a lot of their preferred vendors (they provide recommendations for seemingly every part of the wedding, and their recommended vendors work at Whitehall often) and I loved every single one of them. Everything was so seamless and perfect. I hope to never get married again— but I would return to Whitehall in heartbeat.

This place and its staff is the whole package. From the food to the venue to the staff, everything is just perfect. They are very attentive and accommodating to the guest and especially to the bridal party/ bride and groom. Francisco was fabulous and helped organize everything the day of and the whole catering staff was on point. There was a small inside window that one of our guests accidentally cracked while getting a little too crazy on the dance floor. The staff took care of it without telling my husband or I (I didn't even find out until the next day when my friend texted me an apology) and they did not charge us either! Douglas was so great to work with in planning the day. It really could not have gone better. Highly recommend!

Whitehall was the perfect place for my July wedding. The trees provide cooling shade for outdoor ceremonies, and the food was to die for. Very professional staff, extremely courteous and attentive. Highly recommend!

We just had our wedding at Whitehall and all our guests were raving about what a great venue it was and how beautiful it was. We chose Whitehall because it had the whole package- good food, great indoor and outdoor space, and most importantly was a private venue. Douglas is great to work with and very responsive. Our guests loved the food and no one went hungry! They only do weddings there and you can tell they know their stuff. Awesome experience and I would highly recommend the venue!

I cannot say enough about Whitehall and how amazing a venue it was! When looking for a venue last year, I saw Whitehall and decided to make an appointment right away. As soon as we got there and saw how stunning it was and spoke with Douglas, who is just amazing, I was set and didn't want to look any further. The venue is beyond picturesque and fortunately we had great weather, but even if you don't, their reception hall can double into a ceremony hall and it's beautiful. The food is outstanding and the service was impeccable. Douglas is super responsive and there for every question and will get back to you in lightning speed. This place only does weddings so you can be assured that everything there will be just about flawless and it runs like a well-oiled machine. We seriously had the most perfect day, and people couldn't stop commenting on how good the food, venue, staff were at Whitehall. Highly recommend!!

If you're looking for an amazing all-inclusive wedding venue with an amazing team of caterers and house managers, look no further! Whitehall is amazing, and Douglas (the venue manager and point-person) is so responsive and kind. He is so focused on making sure you have an amazing experience and that every part of your wedding is how you want it to be. He'll do what it takes to make your vision happen, even if that vision is a little unusual. We wanted a brunch wedding that incorporated both mine and my husband's cultures. He worked with us to make sure the menu and drinks reflected our vision. And OMG. The food. The food is SO GOOD. Celebrations Catering, their in-house catering team, really knocked it out of the park with our brunch food. We still have people coming up to us telling us how much they enjoyed the food (Douglas, if you're reading this, pleeeeease share that amazing veggie crêpe recipe! It's to die for!). Anyway, have your wedding at Whitehall. You won't regret it.
